Garden Rose

I have something to say and it may be shocking to some of you…I don’t ‘get’ Martha Stewart…what is they fascination? I’m just as crafty as the next geek but something about her repulses me just a little bit. Maybe it’s because the first time I ever heard of her was when she went to jail (I’m in the UK, not Mars by the way) or because whenever I catch her on Wedding TV (yes I am that sad…) I feel inclined to run away. I mean, she’s not very rock n roll is she?

However, I just saw this wedding on her ridiculously kitch (although it pains me to know it’s not even in an ironic way) wedding website, and despite the source this wedding is so uber gorgeous that I have to share the love.

John & Lily married in Lily’s parent’s back garden which had great sentimental value for the couple. Lily’s beautiful bouquet was made of bridal garden roses, dahlias, orchids, lily of the valley, jasmine, sweetpeas, and scented geranium, all tied together with a cute blue ribbon. She also ordered some custom Liberty fabric clutches for her Bridesmaids, each designed to fit the individual girl’s personality.

Polka Dot Bride

When Leslie & Steve got married they decided to all kick it with their Converse trainers (that’s Chucks to you guys in the States), even the Bride got in on the action, rocking her green trainers under her beyond awesome polka dot dress (I am still waiting to find out where she got it from, don’t worry I will let you know when I do!) The theme was glorious green which really brightened up an otherwise cold winter wedding.

Edit: Leslie’s dress is by Galina

A Pink Rockabilly Romance

Hey Hey…I am back, did you miss meeeee?!  We had a fabulous (and very fancy) time in Brighton this weekend, our hotel was ridiculously posh and we got it all for free (including two 3 course dinners which totaled more than we would spend on food shopping in a month!)  I am surprised they even let us in with my pink mop and Gareth’s j-rock do…

Thought I’d come back with a bang and share this fantastic wedding I have been dying to get out there as soon as I found a few of the images on flickr…I was forced to wait however as the photographer, Phaedra had not yet finished editing them all.  I’m glad I did though because now they are even better than when I first saw them.  This rockabilly style just makes me swoon…and it’s all PINK!
What is also brilliant about this wedding is that almost everything was handmade by local (Californian) artists, Phaedra was kind enough to share some of these with me…
A few details about the wedding- the theme was 1940’s Rockabilly, and just about everything was handmade custom by local artists. The ladies’ attire was made by Debbie Carper (209-656-9334) from Denair, California. The tuxes and men’s shoes were by MX Tux in Merced (209-722-3388). The cakes were custom designed and made by Christy Lobao of Hilmar, California. (209-233-1991). The flowers were made by the Pitman High Agricultural Department (209-602-1146). I made playbill style wedding programs for them.. and my team photographed the wedding (
www.phaedraphotography.com) The hair and make-up was done by Amber Tucker (209-324-3239) I’ve seen Amber’s work a few times now and I’m switching hairdressers! The woman can pull off anything!
